Sure, stupid typo...

Yeah I know pinning and used it sometimes. But I still need to know how 
much the packages "alsa", "alsa-base", "alsautils", "alsa-utils" 
"alsa-tools" and "libasound2" can break the stability of alsa...

I mean they contain the userspace tools I presume. And the only tool I 
explicitly use is aconnect. But others might be needed for alsa to work 

peace, love & harmony
